Prayers for Redemption and Rest

Joyce and I have occasionally had restless nights during this pandemic, and we know others are having the same issue. A former student of mine sent me a link to some recorded prayers over music, and I was moved... and inspired! We have friends who are musicians!

We hope it blesses you at eventide.
